What a setting - 5/5 Food good to OK - 3/5 What terrible service - 0/5 Pizzas and fish and chips always great, come when the weather's good! Don't forget upstairs restaurant, great Sunday Lunch. Come on Blue Peter, quicker service, bigger turnover!

I was in Cape Town during a busy period. it was the Mining Indaba & State of the Nation address. Accommodation was at a premium. I was initially excited about the venue as the Blue Peter had a great reputation and I had driven past it so knew the view it had. Unfortunately that is all it has. I got... More

It was our fist time in Cape Town and South Africa. We were recommended this place to watch the sunset but as we did not know the town we decided to book a room in the hotel as well. The hotel is in general disorganized, everything takes time: check-in, check-out, etc... Their photocopy machine was not working so they were... More

Being from Cape Town, we have been frequenting this popular venue for years. After one of our regular Sunday walks along the beach we were salivating thinking of our breakfast reward. Alas, we were terribly disappointed at the quality of service from our waitress.The food was brought at different times for each of our party of three with us having... More

This lovely restaurant will suit just about everyone. You have the option to eat alfresco or in a beautiful restaurant. Menu is broad and again has something for almost everyone and is extremely good value for money. Staff are polite, friendly and professional. The food portions were above average and very tasty. Well worth a visit. Great views of Table... More

I've stayed regularly at this hotel for the past 40 years. I've never been disappointed. Although the rooms are now a little outdated the staff provide great service with a ready smile. Cosy pub overlooking the beach and the sea view rooms have one of the best outlooks in the Cape. I always have a window seat in the main... More

We booked for a major birthday celebration (91st), the restaurant staff were friendly but incompetent, the food was very poor and the chef unable to make basic substitutions, they messed up the wine order, forgot to keep our white wine chilled, and so on - very disappointing, offset only by the beautiful sunset view.
